These are incredible facilities, which include the only swim-up bar in the area!**

You have everything you could want at this resort. No need for a car here. There is even a free beach shuttle going between Okaloosa, Ft Walton Beach, and Destin. We also have a fully equipped on-site fitness center to help you get in the best shape of your life. This property has great activities. There is a seasonal kids’ club including poolside twister, sandcastle building, jell-o slurping, pool games, crafts, story time, face painting, water sports, and our new, poolside movie nights. Also, we even have kayak and jetski rentals right on our beach! This property is close to the fishing pier, restaurants, clubs, mini golf, and water toy rental. It is only a few miles to the Destin bridge, and right where all the action is. Covered parking protects your car from the hot Florida sun. Our ideal location on Okaloosa Island’s Miracle Strip Parkway (Hwy 98), means that you are a short walk from a convenience store, many fine restaurants, bars, clubs and shops.

This lovely 1 bedroom, 1 bath efficiency (3 walled bedroom, and pass-through to bathtub) condo with WiFi, is close to the parking garage as well as the pool deck and crossover to the Bay. Total convenience! The building is on the beach side of the island with a good view of the entire East end of Okaloosa Island, between Fort Walton Beach and Destin. It is the best vacation destination for the family, golfer, shopper or fisherman. There are no high rises in sight, as nothing over 7 stories is allowed on Okaloosa. Because this building has oodles of waterfront, the white beaches and the teal Gulf waters are never crowded, making it simply paradise! Many people say that these are the most beautiful beaches that they have ever seen. You can relax on your private 4th floor balcony, and watch the sunrise over the island!

** Water features (waterfall, lazy river, sprayers) are planned, but NOT guaranteed, to be open from early March until mid October. Hot tubs and heated pool remain open year-round, except when closed for maintenance. Pool features usually are concurrent with concessions. Beyond that point, it is usually a Board decision based on occupancy and/or the need to perform annual maintenance. Tubes are left out as long as the lay-z-river is operating.
